Etymology[edit]

From Proto-Balto-Slavic *oboˀ (both), alongside Latvian abi, Old Prussian abāi and Proto-Slavic *oba. Frequently linked with Sanskrit उभ (ubhá-), Gothic 𐌱𐌰𐌹 (bai). Due to the anlaut of these words a connection with Latin ambo (both) and Ancient Greek ἀμφό (amphó, both, facing), from Proto-Indo-European *h₂nt-bʰoh₁ (on both sides) has proven problematic. Cf. Proto-Indo-European *h₂entí.
